Smoothwall Express distro in a Proxmox VM (So You Start server, but it's mostly order spam in that forum)

I get no connection to the host/internet with these settings.

My IP.FAIL.OVER is 167.114.26.48

as I think it should be and is not working
RED_ADDRESS=167.114.26.48
RED_NETMASK=255.255.255.255
RED_NETADDRESS=167.114.26.0
RED_BROADCAST=167.114.26.48
DEFAULT_GATEWAY=198.27.83.254
which is
RED_ADDRESS=IP.FAIL.OVER
RED_NETMASK=255.255.255.255
RED_NETADDRESS=167.114.26.0
RED_BROADCAST=IP.FAIL.OVER
DEFAULT_GATEWAY=198.27.83.254
as it apears before editing
RED_ADDRESS=167.114.26.48
RED_NETMASK=255.255.255.0
RED_NETADDRESS=167.114.26.0
RED_BROADCAST=167.114.26.255
DEFAULT_GATEWAY=198.27.83.254

This distro is confusing me because I am new to this and have no problems setting up a debian VM

I had to manually change the RED_NETMASK from 255.255.255.0 because the SW setup didn't accept 255.255.255.255. So that might still be the issue.

All this from
/var/smoothwall/ethernet/settings

Thanks
